This "solution" looks extremely invasive, given all the different places
that could need changing. Maybe it's not worth it, considering the hit that
anyone not using the Windows headers (automatically including anyone not
using Windows nor an IBM-styled PC) takes. What was wrong with limiting the
workaround to "win32.hpp"?
